Its not going dead anymore, well as of last saturday night, went to start it today and it seemed back to normal!

What i did was simply unplugged the boot light, (dont think that was the problem but...)
Someone on vage advised me to do it (thanks whoever u were, cant remeber and cant find out!)

Now onwards and upwards to doing the mk4 brakes and cleaning the throttle body,
ill do a full thread with pics and howto on them subjects over xmas!

(anyone else find if you look at 'vages' user list you can go straight to all threads from there kinda?)

Did you do as I said, and get into the boot and shut it. It would have been terrible to have found the fault and not to be able to get out to fix it.

Good man for fixing it all the same.

its ok thanks lads, agri auto in killanrey, (prob the best place to find anything!!) actually has both tyoes in stock. And to let people know, had this agruement in vage last year, there is definitely a difference between 16v and 8v rear pads!
8v spring on top goes up (v)
16v spring on top goes down (^)
